    Art Journaling in Scripture

    I’m thoroughly enjoying the New Testament Illustrated Faith study titled Revival Camp. The fun travel theme lends itself to a great devotional that sheds light on what we need to wear as believers, looking through a specific perspective (our love glasses) and more. Here is another entry in my Bible I created as I worked through another devotion. I’ve read this verse many a times throughout the years, but to ‘create’ it, really helped me to think on and ponder the meaning. I even cut a heart and glued it back together symbolic that He heals our broken hearts and lifts us up. Psalm 34:18 ~ The Lord is near…

    Diving into the Word – Summer Bible Journaling

    The Summer is all about diving into activities, a change in weather and all it has to offer, the swimming pool and more. Recently I’ve been working on getting healthier and the good weather that Summer brings helps with this process. I’ve been taking an Aqua Fit class that’s fun and beneficial. I was thinking about Bible Journaling and how it too is diving in but having fun! Diving into the Word of God to touch and guide our hearts and fun because Bible journaling is a fresh way to record what God is sharing with you in the margins of your Bible. I see Bible journaling also as a…

    Peak Creative Time For You

    I’ve always been s night owl however after going through breast cancer treatment a few years ago, I found that my body can’t stay up that long anymore. Even though this is true, I still find that the peak creative time for me is in the stillness of the night when all is quiet expect for my imagination.  In fact, sometimes it’s hard to turn off. After being sick for several days and having a lot on my mind, I enjoyed the quite prayerful creative time to watercolor and doodle. I loved watching how the colors fell on the watercolor tin and n the paper. The hues when mixed made…

    Speaking Words of Truth into Your Life

    Most of us want to live a successful life, make a difference and leave a mark on the world. One of the biggest battles we fight on a daily basis is in the mind. I encourage you to create reminders at home, work and even in your car of truth words, Scripture, uplifting quotes and more. There is power in whole and good words.  I created a quick tag and let words just surface. It’s important to speak encouraging truth to others but also just as important to speak truth to ourselves. It’s okay to spur yourself on. Tell yourself things like, “You are strong and brave and can do…

    The Real You – In Art

    While I’ve been healing, I’ve been going through Melody Ross’ course called The Walk. It has been amazing to help walk through some things that might get us stuck in life or to creatively put truth down on paper so that you can be reminded of what to listen to . . . the Truth. We all need that reminder sometimes. I’ve spent some time drawing, sketching, etc. while also pondering. One of the exercises is to journal what we know about ourselves. See images below of my page which folds out of a book that Melody encourages us to create. There are maps which help us walk through things…

    The Walk – A Special Journey and Course

    On The Walk of life it really does make a difference what paths we choose, what we take with us, what we leave behind, who we take with us, what we tell ourselves as we travel and more. I’ve been off for about three weeks with some foot surgery and my time is wrapping up before I head back to work. I haven’t fully recuperated but enough to go back to work. After healing for a couple weeks, I chose to go through Melody Ross’ course, ‘The Walk.’ I had gone through the videos before which are awesome but didn’t take the time to do the course work. It’s one…

    Soul Words ~ A Quick Healthy Soul Exercise

    Working full-time I realize I need to get some Soul Nourishment in before my day starts because once I get to work it’s 0 – 60 in no time flat.

The Exercise: In the image below I’ve listed some soul words. Simply take a planner (your current one or an old one), journal, or even a sheet of paper and say the word out loud. Write the word on your paper and then ponder what that…
